WoW: The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pick:

The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place by Julie Berry

Release date: September 23, 2014

There's a murderer on the loose—but that doesn't stop the girls of St. Etheldreda's from attempting to hide the death of their headmistress in this rollicking farce. 

The students of St. Etheldreda's School for Girls face a bothersome dilemma. Their irascible headmistress, Mrs. Plackett, and her surly brother, Mr. Godding, have been most inconveniently poisoned at Sunday dinner. Now the school will almost certainly be closed and the girls sent home—unless these seven very proper young ladies can hide the murders and convince their neighbors that nothing is wrong. 

The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place is a smart, hilarious Victorian romp, full of outrageous plot twists, mistaken identities, and mysterious happenings.

Gosh, this one just sounds like so much fun! I love scandalous Victorians!


  1. Fun cover on this one. Great pick this week!

  2. Ooh, nice find!! Sounds like it will be darkly amusing and right up my alley - adding it to my tbr now, thanks!

  3. You know how some people buy books based solely on the cover? Well, I sometimes by books based solely on the title. Like The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making, Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, and The Forest of Hands and Teeth . . . OR this one ;)
